This exhibition presents brand new quilts designed by Kaffe Fassett, inspired by the museum’s world-renowned collection of antique American quilts.

The 20 brand new quilts designed by Fassett provide a unique opportunity to see the old and the new alongside one another.

Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably and their design team have worked closely with chief curator Kate Hebert to select appropriate quilts from the Museum’s collection. These treasures were then reimagined and recreated using fabrics designed by the team. The resulting creations showcase Fassett's use of vivid colour combinations.

Also on display at the museum is the exhibition All Shook Up: Thomas Kellner's America.
